Musical Theater Progressive Elizabeth Swados Dies at 64

first_imgListen to “Lullaby from Baby to Baby” from Swados’ Runaways, performed at the 2015 Lilly Awards Broadway Cabaret, below. Among the talented young cast are Fun Home Tony nominee Sydney Lucas, her brother Jake (currently in The King and I) and On Your Feet! ‘s Alexandria Suarez. View Comments RIP Liz Swados, my neighbor on Mercer Street growing up. Thanks for the copy work. Today we teach / the alphabet. https://t.co/HhVGFeBFxD— Robert Lopez (@lopezbobby) January 6, 2016 Elizabeth Swados, a prolific musical theater artist whose works included the socially charged Runaways, died on January 5 in New York. She was 64. Her death, caused by surgery complications after battling esophageal cancer, was confirmed to the New York Times by her wife, Roz Lichter.Runaways premiered as a cabaret in February 1978 at the Public Theater before moving to Broadway that spring. In addition to writing and directing, Swados developed a cast by reaching out to actual runaway teenagers and developing their stories into a musical revue frame. Swados received an Obie Award for Best Direction and received Tony nominations for the book, score, direction and choreography; the show received a nomination for Best Musical.Swados was born on February 5, 1951 in Buffalo, New York to Robert—a lawyer—and Sylvia Maisel—a former actress and poet. Robert passed away in 2012; Maisel took her own life after struggling with depression in 1974. Swados’ only sibling, Lincoln, died in 1989 after developing schizophrenia. She wrote of her family’s talents and tragedy in numerous memoirs, including My Depression: A Picture Book and The Four of Us: The Story of a Family.Swados studied music and creative writing at Bennington College, and before receiving her degree in 1973, she was tasked with scoring Andrei Serban’s adaptation of Madea at La MaMa. The score earned her her first Obie Award; she was 21. A few years later, she composed incidental music for the 1977 Broadway revivals of The Cherry Orchard and Agamemnon.Following Runaways, Swados composed the musical comedy Doonesbury for Broadway. In 1979, she composed Alice at the Palace, a musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s famous Wonderland-set stories. The Public Theater presentation starred Meryl Streep. Her most recent works include 2009 Kaspar Hauser: A Foundling’s Opera (a collaboration with Erin Courtney) and her 2010 oratorio Resilient Souls.In a 1991 interview with the New York Times, Swados said, “Broadway is a museum that’s not moving forward, and musical theater should reflect what and how we are now.” While her work gravitated toward smaller, more experimental companies, Swados’ legacy has paved the way for numerous artists on Broadway and beyond.center_img Liz Swados, how many people did you inspire? @Lin_Manuel @ShainaTaub we were those kids. We will do well by you this summer, as I promised.— Jeanine Tesori (@JeanineTesori) January 6, 2016 Liz Swados was using hip-hop on Broadway in 1978, ahead of EVERYBODY.

Juergen Klopp to take a Year’s Break when Energy Level Falls

first_imgBerlin: Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp has indicated that he will consider taking a one-year sabbatical after his time at Anfield comes to an end. Juergen Klopp is already recognized as one of Liverpool’s most successful managers in the Premier League era, having led the Anfield giants to success in the Champions League last season and missing the league title by a point in what was a record race for the top spot with Manchester City.“I have absolute energy. But I have one problem. I can’t do ‘a little bit’. I can only do ‘all or nothing’,” Klopp told Germany’s Kicker magazine. “When I decide that I cannot do it any longer then I will take a break for a year.”“After that year (break) a decision must then be taken,” Klopp said. “But chances are very high that my energy level will then be there once more and that I can then do the job the way I want to.”Klopp is known for his energy on the sidelines during a match which has landed him in trouble with the officials at times. He joined Liverpool after a succesfull time at Borussia Dortmund where he won two Bundesliga titles and the German Cup. He also led the team to the Champions League final in 2013 where they lost to rivals Bayern Munich.Liverpool have not won the domestic league title since 1990. They are one of the favourites to challenge Manchester City for the title this season and if they manage to win it, Klopp could be considered the most succesfull Liverpool manager in decades.
